GUEST,Frank Hamilton Songwriters: tried Woody Guthrie plan? (35) RE: Songwriters: tried Woody Guthrie plan? 24 Jun 06


My memory of Woody was that he wrote voraciously and compulsively. It wasn't just a song or two a day. It was all the time and he got account books with hard backs and filled them up and piled 'em high in the Will Geer's seed shack in Topanga Canyon, California circa 1952.
There was no Woody Plan. It was just his life style to keep writing and drawing pictures.

He would make up songs on the spot like the "Lady's Auxilliary" song.

BTW, one of his favorite songs was the Cajun "Jolie Blonde".

I remember doin' some pickin' with him in those days.
